Bocas del Toro is a series of islands just across the border in Panama which has a very distinct and interesting culture and beautiful beaches and reefs.

These tours will let you immerse yourself in another nearby area such as Bocas del Toro in Panama or Tortuguero and are a great alternative if you don't have time to spend several days in the area.

If you have more time and want to add several nights then check our destination packages page.
